Riding out among the iron and the clay…
We are living in the most dangerous time in the history of the entire United States of America. The world cannot and never will save itself from its own self-manipulated destruction, stemming from its international struggle to achieve its ultimate one world dominating force. That same dominating force predicted in the book of Daniel—the iron toes mixed with miry clay on the statue seen in King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream. In his dream he saw a great image. This image’s head was of fine gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, and its feet partly of iron and partly of clay.
In the dream, Nebuchadnezzar watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image’s feet of iron and clay and broke it into pieces. The book of Daniel tells us that the king watched as the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.
The interpretation of this dream was told through Daniel to the king. The different body parts represented a succession of great kingdoms that would arise in the future. The head of gold was the kingdom of Nebuchadnezzar—Babylon. The chest and arms of silver was the kingdom of Persia; the belly and thighs of bronze was Macedonia—Alexander’s Greece; the legs of iron was the fourth kingdom of Rome, which would be as strong as iron and would break and crush all of the others. And then there would be the feet and toes, part iron and part miry clay. This kingdom would be divided; yet the strength of the iron would be in it. This kingdom would be partly strong and partly fragile. This iron kingdom would mingle with the seed of men, but they would not be able to adhere to each other, for iron does not mix with clay. These are the kingdoms we have been experiencing since the fall of the Roman Empire. Part democracy, we the people (clay); and part tyranny, oppressive rule (iron). History has shown that the two do not mix well.
Today’s world governments have all fallen away from God’s divine direction and protection. They do not mix well with God’s righteousness or his people.
Daniel continues to declare that, in the days of these kings (representing iron and clay), the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed, symbolized by the stone cut out without human hands who is his son Jesus the Christ, King of kings and Lord of lords. This kingdom will not be left to other people, meaning no king, no dictator, no other government, no army, shall conquer it, no matter how hard evil dares to try, for it belongs to God’s son the King of kings, and he shall consume all of the other kingdoms and break them into pieces, ridding the earth of all manner of oppression that sin and the devil have worked to devise; and then he shall set up his glorious kingdom, and it shall stand forever.
The world today thinks, operates, and is participating in deceptive practices that are ushering in the coming of the Day of the Lord. A day full of woe and destruction. We are here. But God has offered his plan of salvation through his son, Jesus the Christ, for all who will receive it and heavenly armies to assist his people in this dire time of world doom.
For there is a stone, cut out of the mountain without hands (God’s son), and it will break in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold. The great God has made known to the kings and to all who read the scripture in Daniel chapter two what will come to pass after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation is sure.
In Revelation 5, it is written that John sees at the right hand of the throne a book written with 7 seals on the back side of it and a strong angel tells John that no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon and John weeps at hearing this. Then one of the elders tells John to weep not for behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
John looks and sees in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.
Now the image is one of a slain lamb with 7 horns and 7 eyes…and we are not to literally see a creature with horns and eyes but this is symbolic of the seven Spirits of God that are sent out into all of the earth. These are powerful Spirits and symbolic of the Power of God and The Holy Spirit in the winds. As you will see.
The lamb takes the book and all that are before the throne the four beasts, and twenty four elders fall down before Him and every one of them have harps and golden vials filled with odors, which is said are the prayers of the saints. These sing a new song in it saying, “Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof…for thou was slain, and has redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, tongue, and people and nations.”
This is not about one nation of Jewish people, this is about all the people upon the earth, the nations (gentiles) the people the Lord sent his disciples out to tell the good news to that he has risen (the gospel).. This is about God’s Kingdom within each person who are now the temple and the good news that the Lord shall reside in them and they in him through the gift of the Holy Spirit.
And John in seeing this is rejoicing as he marvels this wonder. He hears that now He has made them all Kings and priests to God, and they shall reign on earth. He heard the voice of many angels around the throne and all together with the beasts and the elders the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand and thousands and thousands…millions of people who were slain to receive power, riches, wisdom, strength, honor and glory and blessings.
And John heard every creature that is in heaven, and on the earth and under the earth, and in the sea – he heard all creation giving blessing, honor, glory, and power to the one who sat upon the throne and to the Lamb for ever and ever. And all fell down and worshipped Him.
The Lamb then opened one of the seals and John heard the sounding of thunder and one of the four beasts told him to come and see…and John saw a white horse and the one who sat on him had a bow and a crown was given to him and he went forth conquering and to conquer.
Then He opened the second seal and the second beast said, come and see…. and John looked and saw another horse. This one was red and power was given to him that sat upon it to take peace from the earth and they should kill one another and there was given to him a great sword.
And John saw Him open the third seal and the third beast said…come and see. John looked and saw a black horse and the rider had a pair of balances in his hand. Then a voice in the midst of the four beasts said, “A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.”
Then John watched as the fourth seal was opened and he heard the voice of the fourth beast say come and see. John looked and saw a pale horse and the name of the one that sat on him was Death and hell followed with him. And power was given to them over the fourth part of the earth to kill with the sword, with hunger, with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
These first four seals are described as the riders of the white horse, the red horse, the black horse, and the pale horse.
Then John saw the fifth seal opened and he saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God and for the testimony they held. These cried out asking how long O Lord, holy and true will you not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth. And white robes were given to every one of them and they were told they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants and brothers that should be killed as them is fulfilled.
Then the Lamb opened the sixth seal and there was a great earthquake and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair and the moon became as blood. The stars of heaven fell to the earth like a fig tree casts its untimely figs when shaken by a might wind. Then he saw the heaven depart as a scroll when it is rolled together…and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. The Kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the chief captains, the mighty men and every bondman, and every free man – they all hid themselves from the face of Him that sits on the throne which is God and from the wrath of the Lamb…the Son of God for now the great day of His wrath is come and no one shall be able to stand against Him.
So up to this point we see the first six seals opened and these were all opened by Jesus the Christ, the son of God, after he tore down the gates of hell and conquered death and resurrected. He is the Lamb standing before the Throne opening the seals. He is the only one worthy to do so. For he was the perfect offering for all sin, once and for all, for ever and ever.
And now John sees four angels standing on the four corners of the earth…these are holding the four winds of the earth. The angels make it so that the wind does not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
These four winds are held back….they are not to blow on the earth, the sea, or any tree. At this time John sees another angel ascending from the east having the seal of the living God and the angel cried out with a loud voice to the four angels to who were given the power to hurt the earth and the sea…to not do anything to hurt the earth, sea or trees until they have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
John heard the number to be sealed was 144,000 of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
The tribes to be sealed were of Juda 12,000, Reuben 12,000, Gad 12,000, Aser 12,000, Nepthalim 12,000, Manasses 12,000, Simeon 12,000, Levi 12,000, Issachar 12,000, Zabulon 12,000, Joseph 12,000, and Benjamin 12,000.
And after that John saw a great multitude which no man could number of all nations, kindreds, and people and tongues standing before the throne, and before the Lamb clothed with white robes and palms in their hands and cried out with a loud voice “Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne and unto the Lamb.”
All the angels stood round about the throne and the elders and the four beasts fell before the throne on their faces and worshipped God.
One of the elders asked John what are these arrayed in white robes and from where did they come? John answered, you know. And the elder said to him, these are those which came out of great tribulation and have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore they are before the throne of God and serve him day and night in his temple and he that sits on the throne shall dwell among them.
This is the Kingdom of God…these are the people of the Kingdom ruled by the King of Kings and Lord of Lords…who is the Lamb of God. John is told that these shall hunger no more, nor thirst, nor shall the sun light on them nor any heat, for the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and lead them unto living fountains of waters and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
And then the seventh seal is opened and there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. And John saw the seven angels which stood at the altar having a golden censer and there was given to him much incense that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar that was before the throne. The smoke of the incense with the prayers of the saints went up before God out of the angel’s hand and the angel took the censer and filled it with fire from the altar and cast it into the earth and there were voices, thunderings, and lightnings and an earthquake. And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
This great tribulation begins with the crucifixion of our Lord, Jesus the Christ who is the Lamb. John is shown these things as the Lord stands before the throne of his Father, God. He is the Lamb worthy to open the seals. These seven seals when they are opened unleash the spirit winds that cause great tribulation upon the earth. They are symbolic as horsemen. In Zechariah and in the book of Enoch we are shown that the horsemen are symbolic of the “four spirits of the heavens.” Holy Spirits of the Wind.
In Zechariah chapter 1 the four horses are seen amidst the shadows under the trees and are said to be sent by God to go forth throughout the earth and spoken of again in chapter 6:1-8 where they are described as the four spirits of the heavens. These spirits go throughout the earth in different directions accomplishing their assigned tasks in the lands they are sent.
In the Book of Enoch it is said that there are four angels that are responsible for the twelve individual winds that blow on the earth; four bringing prosperity, and eight bringing plague and destruction.
So what are these 12 winds?
ENOCH Chapter 76:1-4: “And at the ends of the earth I saw twelve portals open to all the quarters (of the heaven), from which the winds go forth and blow over the earth. Three of them are open on the face of the heavens, and three in the west, and three on the right of the heaven, and three on the left.
And the three first are those of the east, and three are of the north, and three of the south, and three of the west. Through four of these come winds of blessing and prosperity, and from those eight come hurtful winds: when they are sent, they bring destruction on all the earth and on the water upon it, and on all who dwell thereon, and on everything which is in the water and on the land.”
To understand these directions, we can see it most clearly when we look at the earth the way Enoch saw it. What is North is the center of the earth. What is South is all that falls below the North from around the entire circle of the earth. The west is clockwise and the east moves counter clockwise.
Consider the compass. It must be held flat to work. The magnetic center is always north. The compass pulls to the magnetic field of the north even in the southern hemisphere. How could it do this on a ball? The North Star is always in the north no matter where you are on the earth. If we were on a ball spinning… this would not be possible. The North Star is held in place by the north polar opening and magnetic pull of force. We always know where God’s throne is in the North for the North Star points us there always.
The sun, moon and stars all arise in the east and set in the west. These make perfect circles around us every day. They travel in a circular westward path like the hands on a clock and do not travel in a straight path. They are not right and left handed arrows facing directions, but rather clockwise in motion around the poles.
Consider jet streams on a flat circle earth and on a spinning globe. They only work on a flat earth.
So Enoch was shown the portals of the earth and the circuits of the sun, moon and stars. He was shown the storehouse of the winds and where they are at. These would not work on a spinning globe. The twelve spirit winds are sent out by angels.
There are also four spirit winds, or four horsemen who are holding back until the time they are to be loosed.
Satan and his minions know all of this, but they do not want you to know any of it. They are out to deceive and are liars to keep you from learning the truth. They set out to kill, steal and destroy all that is of truth and of God.
But God has a covenant with His people.
God’s covenant with his people is simple. He will be your God and you shall be His people. The Lord simplified what we are to do by saying to Love God with all of your heart, mind and soul and to love our neighbor as ourselves.
In the beginning from Adam onward, God’s children looked toward the promise of the coming Messiah. From the time of the Messiah’s death, and resurrection, those who believe in Him have all looked back at the days our Christ walked the earth and all of his teachings and those of the prophets. We await His second return to be with Him and have Him pour out the wrath of God upon the unjust who seek to kill, steal and destroy God’s creation and His children.
In Leviticus God speaks of all of the many blessings he shall bestowe on a people called by His name who follow His statutes and keep his covenant. He blesses them beyond ones imagination. And history shows such times of plenty and bounty for his people. But there is also an “if” that goes with this covenant. That is “if” you walk in my ways and keep my statutes and covenant…then God will do this and this and a multitude of wonderous things and no one shall come into your land to harm you. However…if His people break that covenant…than he will do things to chastise you so you will remember Him and return to Him.
12 And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and ye shall be my people. 13I am the LORD your God, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, that ye should not be their bondmen; and I have broken the bands of your yoke, and made you go upright. 14But if ye will not hearken unto me, and will not do all these commandments; 15And if ye shall despise my statutes, or if your soul abhor my judgments, so that ye will not do all my commandments, but that ye break my covenant: 16I also will do this unto you; I will even appoint over you terror, consumption, and the burning ague, that shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart: and ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it. 17And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before your enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you; and ye shall flee when none pursueth you. 18And if ye will not yet for all this hearken unto me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins. 19And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass: 20 And your strength shall be spent in vain: for your land shall not yield her increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruits.

God achieves such things by sending out the winds of heaven – the same horsemen who do what is commanded of them to do.
In Daniel chapter 7, Daniel has a dream where he sees the four winds of heaven stirring up the Mediterranean Sea. These four winds stir up the sea, and in doing so, cause four beasts to rise up from the waters. These beasts are later explained to be symbols for different nations that would arise.
Daniel 7:2 “Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea.”
Again in Daniel 8:8 it speaks of the four winds of heaven. “Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven.”
The book of Daniel is written partly in Hebrew, and partly in Aramaic – a language very similar to Hebrew. This part of Daniel is written in Aramaic which the word for “wind” is RUKHA, and also means “spirit.” just like in Hebrew RUAKH means Spirit Wind.
So the four “spirits” in Daniel that were sent out to the nations are the same four winds explained deeper in Zechariah as the four horsemen and are the same four “spirits” that Zechariah saw twice in his own visions. For in Hebrew, the word for “spirit” is RUAKH, and it literally just means “wind” or even “breath.” The book of Zechariah was written in the Hebrew language, so the four spirits/horses he sees there are “four spirit winds.”
Here are some excerpts from Matthew Henry in his commentary of the Horsemen sent out in Zechariah 6:
“But I incline rather to understand this vision more generally, as designing to represent the administration of the kingdom of Providence in the government of this lower world. The angels are often called the chariots of God, as Ps. 68:17; 18:10. The various providences of God concerning nations and churches are represented by the different colors of horses, Rev. 6:2, 4, 5, 8. And so we may observe here, On verse 1– That the counsels and decrees of God are the spring and original of all events, and they are immovable, as mountains of brass. The chariots came from between the two mountains; for God performs the thing that is appointed for us: his appointments are the originals, and his performances are but copies from them; he does all according to the counsel of his will.
“We could as soon grasp the mountains in our arms as comprehend the divine counsels in our finite understandings, and as soon remove mountains of brass as alter any of God’s purposes; for he is in one mind, and who can turn him? Whatever the providences of God are concerning us, as to public or private affairs, we should see them all coming from between the mountains of brass, and therefore see it as much our folly to quarrel with them as it is our duty to acquiesce in them. Who may say to God, What doest thou, or why doest thou so? Acts 2:23; 4:28. On Verse 2- That God executes his decrees in the works of Providence, which are as chariots, in which he rides as a prince in an open chariot, to show his glory to the world, in which, as in chariots of war, he rides forth conquering and to conquer, and triumphing over all the enemies of his glory and government. God is great and terrible in his doings (Ps. 66:3), and in them we see the goings of our God, our King, Ps. 68:24. His providences move swiftly and strongly as chariots, but all directed and governed by his infinite wisdom and sovereign will, as chariots by their drivers.
“On verse 3- That the holy angels are the ministers of God’s providence, and are employed by him, as the armies of heaven, for the executing of his counsels among the inhabitants of the earth; they are the chariots, or, which comes all to one, they are the horses that draw the chariots, great in power and might, and who, like the horse that God himself describes (Job 39:19, etc.), are clothed with thunder, are terrible, but cannot be terrified nor made afraid; they are chariots of fire, and horses of fire, to carry one prophet to heaven and guard another on earth. They are as observant of and obsequious to the will of God as well-managed horses are to their rider or driver. Not that God needs them or their services, but he is pleased to make use of them, that he may put honor upon them, and encourage our trust in his providence. On verse 4- That the events of Providence have different aspects and the face of the times often changes. The horses in the first chariot were red, signifying war and bloodshed, blood to the horse-bridles, Rev. 14:20. Those in the second chariot were black, signifying the dismal melancholy consequences of war; it puts all into mourning, lays all waste, introduces famines, and pestilences, and desolations, and makes whole lands to languish. Those in the third chariot were white, signifying the return of comfort, and peace, and prosperity, after these dark and dismal times: though God cause grief to the children of men, yet will he have compassion. Those in the fourth chariot were of a mixed color, grizzled and bay; some speckled and spotted, and ash-colored, signifying events of different complexions interwoven and counter-changed, a day of prosperity and a day of adversity set the one over-against the other. The cup of Providence in the hand of the Lord is full of mixture, Ps. 75:8. 5. That all the instruments of Providence, and all the events of it, come from God, and from him they receive their commissions and instructions
“On verse 5- These are the four spirits of heaven, the four winds (so some), which seem to blow as they list, from the various points of the compass; but God has them in his fists and brings them out of his treasuries. Or, rather, These are the angels that go forth from standing before the Lord of all the earth, to attend upon him and minister to him, to behold his glory in the upper world, which is their blessedness, and to serve his glory in their blessedness, and to serve his glory in this lower world, which is their business. They stand before him as the Lord of the whole earth, to receive orders from him and give up their accounts to him concerning their services on this earth, for it is all within his jurisdiction. But, when he appoints, they go forth as messengers of his counsels and ministers of his justice and mercy. Those secret motions and impulses upon the spirits of men by which the designs of Providence are carried on, some think, are these four spirits of the heavens, which go forth from God and fulfil what he appoints, who is the God of the spirits of all flesh.“
These four horses/spirits/winds are all related to God’s judgments on the nations, the same as written in the book of Revelation when the Lamb opens the seals to the book. The spirit winds are spoken of throughout the old testament. They are introduced in Leviticus as to how God uses them. This is why, when we read of the four angels in Revelation 7, we should not be confused but have the same understanding.
Revelation 7:1 KJV “And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.”
In Revelation, the seven seals are opened…and the first four are the horsemen unleashed which are seven Spirits of God to obey God’s commands to dole out what He commands upon the earth. These are to bring about great tribulation…and then there are four spirits held back…until the time of the very end. Then after that… there are four angels holding back four winds… until God seals his people. These insure safety to Gods elect throughout the four corners of the earth.
In the book of Leviticus chapter 26, we see that if a nation called by God’s name does not obey His commands, they will be judged. He clearly spells out the ways of pestilence, famine, wild beasts, and the sword. God has always judged His nations with these.
In Deuteronomy God speaks of giving rain and blessings and taking them away.
Deuteronomy 11: 14-17
14 That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil. 15 And I will send grass in thy fields for thy cattle, that thou mayest eat and be full. 16 Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them; 17 And then the LORD’S wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit; and lest ye perish quickly from off the good land which the LORD giveth you.
Deuteronomy 11:23 Then will the LORD drive out all these nations from before you, and ye shall possess greater nations and mightier than yourselves. Read:DEUTERONOMY CHAPTER 11 KJV (kingjamesbibleonline.org)
When God is for you…no one can be against you! God is the creator of all things and empirically rules over all creation.
Deuteronomy Chapter 28 tells what God will do to a nation who does not keep his commandments and goes astray….
Which one of these are not happening this very day?
16 Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field. 17 Cursed shall be thy basket and thy store. 18 Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. 19 Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt thou be when thou goest out. 20 The LORD shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me.
21The LORD shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until he have consumed thee from off the land, whither thou goest to possess it. 22 The LORD shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish. 23 And thy heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee shall be iron.
24 The LORD shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust: from heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed. 25 The LORD shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies: thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them: and shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth. 26 And thy carcase shall be meat unto all fowls of the air, and unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall fray them away. 27 The LORD will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, and with the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou canst not be healed. 28 The LORD shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart: 29 And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save thee.
30Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her: thou shalt build an house, and thou shalt not dwell therein: thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof. 31 Thine ox shall be slain before thine eyes, and thou shalt not eat thereof: thine ass shall be violently taken away from before thy face, and shall not be restored to thee: thy sheep shall be given unto thine enemies, and thou shalt have none to rescue them. 32 Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long: and there shall be no might in thine hand. 33 The fruit of thy land, and all thy labours, shall a nation which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt be only oppressed and crushed alway: 34 So that thou shalt be mad for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.
35 The LORD shall smite thee in the knees, and in the legs, with a sore botch that cannot be healed, from the sole of thy foot unto the top of thy head. 36 The LORD shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known; and there shalt thou serve other gods, wood and stone. 37 And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the LORD shall lead thee. 38 Thou shalt carry much seed out into the field, and shalt gather but little in; for the locust shall consume it.
39 Thou shalt plant vineyards, and dress them, but shalt neither drink of the wine, nor gather the grapes; for the worms shall eat them. 40 Thou shalt have olive trees throughout all thy coasts, but thou shalt not anoint thyself with the oil; for thine olive shall cast his fruit. 41 Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity. 42 All thy trees and fruit of thy land shall the locust consume.
43 The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low. 44 He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail. 45 Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee: 46 And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever.
47 Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things; 48 Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.

The prophetic plan of the Most High laid forth in Revelation is already in motion and now moving rapidly to fulfill His grand goal for the world.
The whole reason for obeying the specific laws of the Creator is because He has taken the time and effort to enter into a covenant with mankind. The covenants of the Creator imply that if we will do something, that He will do something in return. Just like a marriage covenant – both parties are expected to uphold their vows – so too are the spiritual covenants of the Creator with man. We obey because we are joined to Him in covenant! If we follow our own desires, we are letting idols into our lives, instead of following His desires, and worshiping Him only. Being in a covenant means living with the well-being of the other in mind, not just one’s self.
11 For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off. 12 It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? 13 Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? 14 But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it. 15 See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil; 16 In that I command thee this day to love the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the Lord thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it. 17 But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them; 18 I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it.
19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
Now this covenant is not talked about a lot in many churches. Yet, this is the most dire of all…and it encompasses the Revelation of Jesus Christ and all of His teachings. Our Lord said to love God with all of our heart, mind and soul and to love our neighbor as ourselves and by doing those two commands we will have followed all the commands of God. It has been simplified for us. And the spirit winds are now and always have been revealed to us in the Word of God…these are his powerful Spirit Winds and they OBEY GOD the horsemen go to and fro throughout the land and a day is coming and the Lord shall be sent forth to disperse the wrath of God with ten thousands of his angels.
So when people tell you God doesn’t send out any calamities on the earth. That person is not speaking the true Word of God. It is a part of the covenant God has made with man…and he has given us His only begotten Son and sent us the Holy
Spirit to make it an easy, everlasting covenant so all might have eternal life. God will seal his children and He shall do as he has promised in all things. So fear not and know that God is preparing each for the Coming Kingdom on Earth as it is in Heaven.
We must each read the scriptures for ourselves and see with our own eyes and hear with our own ears. The Holy Spirit shall teach you all things.
